Twitch Will Be Ad-Free if You Are an Amazon Prime Member

Twitch is going to be ad-free for anyone who pays for Amazon Prime alongside with that, the new user tier will also include some other perks.

Twitch, the game streaming site that every teen knows about, is going to  be ad-free for anyone who pays for Amazon Prime alongside with that, the new user tier will also include some other perks.

Twitch is currently owned by Amazon and today’s announcement from the company sheds some light on new perks of being a Prime Subscriber. The service will be -not surprisingly- called Twitch Prime and alongside with providing ad-free viewing, it will also offer games on discount prices and “game loot” for its members.

Game Loot will give users new characters, vehicles another in-game stuff for users. Also, Twitch Prime will give you a free channel subscription every month. It is not yet clear if you can keep the channel subscription for free or not.

Combining it with 2-day shipping and Amazon’s video and music libraries, the cost of $99 a year doesn’t sound too much.

Unlike other services such as Prime Video, you can’t directly subscribe to Twitch Prime standalone, instead, you are asked to sign up for Amazon Prime. The first month is free and then you will have to pay $10.99 per month.

Twitch has a deep impact on Gaming Industry and with the Twitch Prime, Amazon seems very confident that the impact of Twitch will help make the e-commerce giant more money.

In case you have no idea about it, No Man’s Sky is a really ambitious game that lets you wonder in the space where you will be discovering many planets and quests. The player’s goal in the game is to reach the center of the galaxy. You will be doing spaceship upgrades, deciphering languages of aliens and more. One of the most important part of game is that there are no rules to decide how you play the game.

Developers have said that the game will be massive, so massive that there will be almost 18 quintillion planet to explore and even if you go to a planet for one second, you will need more than 500 Billion years to see them all.
If it works, No Man’s Sky can be one of the greatest games ever made.

These are named as : The Contraptions Workshop, Vault-tec Workshop and Nuka-World theme park.

Bethseda has not cleared if these will be in Virtual Reality too, but I think it will also be available for VR.

9 Movie-Based Games You Don’t Know About

Video games based on major films tend to generate a lot of attention. But every now and then such a game slips through the cracks.

Video games based on major films tend to generate a lot of attention. But every now and then such a game slips through the cracks, either because it’s designed on a smaller scale or because it simply doesn’t perform well with critics upon release. Not all of these games are particularly worthwhile, but here are 9 relatively unknowing titles based on very big films that you may find are worth your time.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game

This is actually more based on the total Ghostbusters franchise than any single film. Though because Ghostbusters: The Video Game was designed with original story content, it’s perhaps best described as a playable sequel to Ghostbusters II. This game cracked a list at WhatCulture of good video games based on movies because it “truly is a third GB movie.” While that might be going a bit far, the sentiment is fair. This game nails the Ghostbusters atmosphere and is a full adventure.

Man Of Steel – Metropolis Mayhem

This game by Warner Bros. was released alongside Man Of Steel and though it’s ultimately pretty short and simple, it’s a lot of fun. The graphics are sharp and you get to control Superman whizzing around Metropolis blasting things out of your way with heat vision. That’s about all you want in a Superman game, right?

Achilles

Though not officially related to the film Troy, this amusing side-scrolling and slashing experience from the selection at Armor Games includes actual audio from the film. More importantly, despite crude graphics, it’s a terrific game and an awesome chance to enjoy the elite combat capabilities of ancient Greece’s mightiest warrior.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

This one is pretty simple: the film of the same name was horrible, but the game designed for Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii was terrific.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E.: Mission Berlin

Despite a lot of publicity and a cast headlined by up-and-coming Hollywood hunks, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. generated relatively little noise in 2015. But this accompanying app by Warner Bros. was surprisingly fun. It’s a 3D, third-person shooter/stealth adventure that’s pretty effectively designed for mobile devices.

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

The two Hulk-based films that were released prior to the launch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe both fell short in their own ways. But this video game released in between the two has been hailed as a near-perfect Hulk gaming experience. It allows players to enjoy the sheer destructive power of the green beast, and it’s available for the PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube.

LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4

This is probably the most popular title on the list, so it may not fit under the umbrella of games you haven’t heard of. However, because most of the focus has always been on the console version of the game, it feels worth noting that the app version is about every bit as good.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Released in 2014 for brand-new consoles (at the time) like the Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 accompanied the film of the same name. It generated more attention than most games on this list, but it also blended in with a pretty crowded list of Spider-Man games released in the past decade. The film didn’t do particularly well with fans or critics, which may have contributed to this game being somewhat ignored. On its own, this is a gorgeous and thorough open-world action experience. It’s arguably the closest non-Batman superhero game to match the quality of the Arkham series.

Pirates Online

Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl was a sensation when it first came out, even if its sequels made the franchise appear silly and confusing. The Pirates Online MMO brings the world of the films to life in a pretty satisfying way, however, and is certainly a fun option for anyone who loved that first film.

Frankly, the world of movie-based gaming is larger than most of us tend to realize. And these are just a few forgotten titles from that world that are worth your time if you can get your hands on them.
